Child Therapist

Susan Christiansen, Ph.D, LMFT, MSW

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

1555 Palm Beach Lakes Blvd Suite 405, West Palm Beach, Florida

As a marriage and family therapist, I see the innocence of a child as the foundation for well-being. I work with the child's strengths in the context of family, school, friends, divorce, abuse, and other situations which may impact the emotional health of the child. Everything is in relationship to other forms of behavior. We derive a fuller understanding of these relational patterns from a brief comparison of other scenarios. Looking at the bigger picture can lead to a happier story ending.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children. And many times doctors overpathologize issues that shouldn’t be medicated necessarily. This leaves parents wondering what is the best route for their child? Introducing brainwave optimization technology. A fast, effective, natural, and less expensive way to allow your child's brain to make the optimizing changes it desires to make---on its own! Without any external force, opinion, medication, diagnostic, etc. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

Child Therapist

Susan Nestler, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

1900 S. Olive Ave., West Palm Beach, Florida

I offer Play-Family Therapy for children from 3 - 12. The therapy starts each session with 20 minutes of family time to discuss both strengths and difficulties the child or family is having. The child then spends 30 minutes in the imaginative realm of play therapy, where the metaphors of his play mirror the life hurts and challenges of his/her everyday life. Children often choose the sand tray, with its many figures which are symbols for the elements of their inner experience. But the play room is also full of other toys that allow play themes to unfold. I create a safe space for the child to understand and express his/her experience and provide parenting support at family meetings.

Child Therapist

David Ransen, Ph.D., LMFT, BCH

Clinical Director

727 Penn St., West Palm Beach, Florida

So many child behavior and parenting problems simply vanish, once we understand a few basics. Children are not small adults, and should not be expected to respond the way adults do. Children, like everyone else, respond beautifully to praise, love and reward. By contrast, punishment creates only resentment and the motivation to not get caught. All the particulars flow from these simple truths. Even the most defiant and disrespectful children can quickly come around, if we simply pay a little more attention to connecting praise and rewards to desirable behavior, and withholding them for unwanted behavior.

Marleen Roy, Ed., MS, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor, EMDR Approved Consultant & Certified Therapist

2101 Vista Parkway - The Nexus At Vista Parkway , West Palm Beach, Florida

Therapy for children involves full analysis of issues which can include, but not limited to; psychoeducation on child development, parenting practices, blended family topics, positive coping skills in home and school, academy success, treatment of ADHD, sensory processing disorders, disruptive mood-dysregulation disorder, anxiety, depression including bereavement, bullying and social skills/communication development. Common to children and teens are peer pressure, broken family or friend relationship issues, and technology lifestyles that can overshadow and deplete critical "ages and stages" of healthy development. Child/ teen therapies are best incorporated with the caregivers.

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in West Palm Beach, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it.
